I am so sorry. I sure hope you can go, I have the other problem of going all the time. Are you eating? Maybe the stress of just being diagnosed and having to be stuck in the hospital are binding you up. I know it is hard, but try to relax and see what happens. I will pray for your release and that you feel better soon. Good luck.

They have me on Colozol or however you're supposed to spell it, and they give me steroid IV every like 6 hours.

Did you have a colonoscopy? If so, sometimes it takes a couple of days for food to work its way back through the system again. Also be sure you're eating. Hospital food isn't usually the best, but if you don't put anything in, nothing will come out.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.

So sorry you are sick and scared but you have to tell the Dr. or nurse you are not going. If they release you and you are still having problems then you are not going to feel any better. Make them work with your problem winkerblink, thats what you are there for. Dont try to medicate yourself. O d lots of research for yourself too. Dont be like me and depend on Drs. to know proper treatment. Good luck.
